The Business Excellence Awards program of the Chamber of Commerce Brantford ● Brant, established in 1985, is one of the premier events held each year. This is an opportunity for the Chamber to highlight and honour excellence in the business community.
Initially, one award was presented to a company in Brant County. However, it soon became evident that two awards were needed so the smaller companies could also compete.
In 1990, two awards were given - one representing companies with 50 or more employees and one to a company with fewer than 50 employees. The program was reviewed yet again, and in 1996 the Business Excellence committee recommended that the awards be modified to a Company award and an Entrepreneur award. These categories more appropriately reflect the Chamber membership.
In 1992, a Technology Award was introduced.
